Watch the full video of President Barack Obama at the 2014 White House Correspondents’ dinner below.

President Barack Obama will join journalists, politicians, celebrities and media personalities Saturday night at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

The dinner is a star-studded evening known for its moments of comedic release, often at the expense of the attendees.

Joel McHale, star of the NBC series “Community,” and well known from “The Soup” on the E! cable network, will host this year’s event.

As Mr. Obama spends the afternoon golfing with three aides at Fort Belvoir in Virginia before the dinner, NewsHour takes a look back at some of the best video from correspondents’ dinners of years prior.

After the White House released President Obama’s long-form birth certificate, Obama used his opening address at the 2011 dinner to take a comedic jab at speculation that he had been lying about where he was born. (0-3:25)

President George W. Bush and impersonator Steve Bridges take the stage together during the 2006 dinner.

C-SPAN’s compilation video in honor of the 100th anniversary of the White House Correspondents’ Association takes a look at speakers at the dinner over the years, from President Ronald Reagan to former first lady Laura Bush.
